Upon arrival, it took a few minutes for Che to get instructions from a Trust volunteer and then we were off. We took off across a very nice foot bridge and turned off to the right, heading into the woods on a nice path with sun-dappled light. We were soon following along the creek, always a treat on a hot day, and then looped back to the main trail. For the next half mile or so, we treked on a path that led us up and down a wide trail. Then we found ourselves on the main trail that led to the top of the brow and we began to climb at an easy pace. The heat was steadily rising so we took it at a languid stroll more than a fast climb. Reaching the intersection of the trail, Che pointed a few of us to the left and waited for the others. When we were all reunited, we walked on with peeks of the brow views tantalizing us off to the right. Finally, we came to a gorgeous open brow with spectacular views of the valley in the Flintstone area. We gawked a while and then continued down the path looking for a short trail Che had been directed to called the High Adventure Trail.
The mysterious, and as yet, unidentified flower...any guesses??
UPDATE: I found out it is a Spider Lily!
